Some families in mid-Michigan are heading into the long holiday with broken hearts.

In the last week, five people have been shot and three of them have died.

The shootings took place in Flint and Saginaw.

The latest victim died in Saginaw on Friday morning.

All the victims were relatively young: the oldest was 25 years old, and the youngest was in their teens.

One shooting took place Friday morning on Court Street near south Woodbridge in Saginaw.

That's where police found a 21-year-old man who was shot and killed while riding his bike.

Sadly, that was not the only shooting police were called to Friday morning.

A 15-year-old girl was shot in the head after a drive-by shooting just after 2 a.m. Friday on Flint's north side, and is currently listed in critical condition.
